Have you heard of Hypebeasts? You haven’t? Let me explain. Hypebeasts are basically people (mostly teenagers and young adults) who have jumped on the bandwagon and are obsessed with high fashion clothing brands, like Off White, Gucci, and Supreme, to name a few.

It might seem weird for me to hate something that literally doesn’t affect me, but I just have a personal grudge against these people. Hypebeasts are willing, nay, want to buy these expensive items just to seem cooler. Off White is selling a pink bomber jacket for more than $1400! Who needs that?!

And besides the crazy retail prices, have you seen the resale prices? On the site/app G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time), the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 goes for $945, which is expensive, and I’d never pay that much for a pair of shoes, but even worse is on a website like Flight Club, where the shoes cost a whopping 1150. Even sadder? The Yeezy Red Octobers. The retail price is $250. Sounds reasonable, right? Well, on the website G.O.A.T., they are being resold (a size 10) for $5,000. Just… no. That is crazy for a pair of shoes! You don’t need the most expensive shoes in the world to be happy. This is a waste of money! To put things into perspective, the average American income, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, was $857. Eight hundred and fifty seven dollars. To buy a pair of Yeezy Red Octobers, if you had two parents, it would take just under 3 weeks, if your parents don’t buy anything else during that three week period.

Many Hypebeasts also have a sense of entitlement that comes with wearing these popular brands. They seem to think that wearing expensive clothing from brands like Bape or or Off-White makes them automatically cooler than other people (in my own, personal opinion). They like to pester people by asking if they are wearing fakes, and generally being really rude to others because they think they have “Supreme” clothing just because it has a fancy font in a box, and is extremely overpriced. And besides that, they are incredibly rude to each other. I don’t know about you, but if you know a hypebeast, you know they are always talking smack about each other. They always like to say “Oh… That’s not real *insert hypebeast brand*. You’re so lame.” No one really talks like that, but you get my point.

Overall, in my opinion, Hypebeasts are annoying jerks with a superiority complex based around their clothing. They really like having expensive, name brand products, even if  there is no difference between them and generic stuff from Target or Old Navy, or even a cheap thrift store. I believe that the clothes that you wear don’t really matter- and, honestly, I probably won’t take you as seriously if you flaunt around Supreme or Bape or Gucci. Being a hypebeast-supremacist just makes you look like a jerk.
